The rays can be damaging to the eyes, and you will not want to look up at the sun while the eclipse is happening.

Over the weekend, millions of Americans crowded into the narrow celestial interstate from OR to SC known as the "path of totality", where a total solar eclipse appeared briefly on Monday.

The last time the "path of totality" - basically, the path along which people can see the total eclipse, rather than partial - passed exclusively through the continental United States was in June 1257. The entire continent of North America will be treated to the solar eclipse. The last one prior to today's was more than 38 years ago, on February 26, 1979. ─ AFP A view of the solar eclipse at the Solar Temples at Big Summit Prairie ranch in Oregon's Ochoco National Forest. Earlier Monday, a NASA photographer captured a gorgeous photo of the ISS transiting the sun as the moon took a bite out of the star's bright face.

If you look inside the tube at the large rectangle, "you should see a bright, white image of the sun suddenly appear at the very end of the tube", Fulco said. A total solar eclipse happens when the Moon blocks out the Sun's rays entirely and forms a halo of light around the Moon, called a corona.

If you have absolutely no choice but to miss the eclipse or if weather is uncooperative where you are, don't fret too badly. Viewers within the path of totality-a thin, 70-mile-wide swath-will see the moon completely eclipse the sun.

"Its longest duration will be near Carbondale, Illinois, where the Sun will be completely covered for two minutes and 40 seconds", says the United States space agency. The third pass will offer the most coverage with the sun 84% obscured by the moon. The eclipse is expected to last about three hours from start to finish, with totality lasting a maximum of 2 minutes and 40 seconds.
